to represent populations that continue to use the yellow pages. these are seniors, disabled, and are low income communities. i have distributed a couple of technical amendments to the legislation that i understand are not substantive. the first set of amendments clarify our findings based on the hearings that we have in this issue. the second set of amendments insures that not only will we ought reach to individuals who are seniors, disabled, but also those for whom english might not be the first language. the third amendment simply clarifies a change that was made in committee. supervisor wiener propose that we had a start date for this legislation. we had help the debate and at the end of the day, we extended the start date to next may. over a year from now. the sunset date clarifies that this is a three-year pilot program. i would like to thank the small business commission for your consideration of this proposal. the chamber of commerce testified that this is good for business and good for how we build a 21st century economy here in san francisco. i would like to ask that we adopt the amend

after his son, who was tragically taken from us to do to violence. he was a star athlete at balboa high school. he was in the process of being hired by recreation and parks. out of that tragedy, this very setting reminds us that we need to look after each other. i would like to thank supervisor avalos, the author of this legislation, supervisor campos, a strong supporter of this legislation. the director of city build, the many department heads that were impacted by this legislation, the head of sfmta, the head of the human rights commission, the head of the office of labor standards, the head of the recreation department, and more. i would like to thank local 261, josh, vince, pam, and all the city build students who are with us today. mayor lee. mayor lee came into office and reaffirmed his commitment to looking after the great people who live in our city. one of his top priorities is to stimulate the local economy with jobs and he has empowered me with implementing the new local higher policy. i promised that i would not focus on the process, but on a measurable outcomes in the areas
that is available to us so that we balance the line's directions -- it is important for us to balance the system because everything goes through the subway. if something happened on one line, it can affect all the others. on a number of occasions, what we do to balance the trains -- if you had five trains in a row outbound on the n line, we would use a switch back to turn one of those trains in bound, so if people were waiting, they could have a train coming as close to schedule as we can. it is a common technique in the industry. the reason why use it is it is one of the service management techniques we can use with our physical plant. we have talked about the potential of using gap trains, buses, but a switchback is essentially a service management technique to address a delay in the system. the second part of your question? commissioner campos: maybe you are already addressing this, but the switch back rate for the 14 line relative to the others? maybe you do not keep that record. >> what i wanted to show you today on the 14th line is we do a number of things in addition to switchbacks, swapp
, and the middle of a lot of high unemployment. then you looked at city build right behind us and they are hungry. are you hungry for jobs? [applause] they have been asking where the promises have been and who is implementing it. when we look at promise after promise not fulfilled, the city had to ask itself, can we do better? can we really deliver on this process? that's what this ordinance has been about three it's not a new promised to local jobs have always been about an old promise that we would involve more communities in what we build for the city. the unions know that. carpenter's know that. laborers know that. they've known that for year. have we made that aggressive action to do so? through the hard work that everybody has to chip in and not only at the hearing that the board, but also, have we made the internal commitment within the city structure? has the mayor's office joined with the board, with the office of workforce economic development, with all of our allies at the labor standards office, the human rights commission, are office of contract administration, aour dpw, puc, mta, ou
in the police field. i hear it is improving recently. in regards to serving the community, for using this money, since it is in the millions of dollars, i would like to make a controversial suggestion and see where it goes from here. according to my work experience at san francisco general hospital, it is a sad commentary that much of the time he used by city employees using city in -- computers has been underutilized. one of the things that i would like to point out, which many consider a taboo subject, is how much pornography actually flows through the city's various computers during the workday. i have a suspicion the comptroller's office has some information in regards to that, but i do not know for sure. i think it is proper to maybe do an investigation using this grant money, to see how much actual pornography flows through the city's best computer system during the workday. my main interest is not only on pornography, but also to highlight the federal law enforcement efforts on the very sensitive subject of child pornography. thank you. supervisor chu: thank you. is there anyone from the
it is better, a lot of us feel a could be stronger and more explicit. it is only about a page and a half. there are other aspects of the electric research plan that cca could be more iterative about. the key problem that we noted was that when they put together the advisory committee, there were no consultants on that committee. that is why it is not as robust as we feel it needs to be. what we respectfully ask the staff to do, after today, there will be two consultants. and i would ask lafco to have those consultants do that work. we make sure we are covering all the bases. those of you that remember the power plant battle might remember the previous 2002 electric resources plan was a problem because it promoted that power plants. staff and other officials with constantly bring up the electric resources plan as an excuse to say that we should build a power plant. that is why it is crucial that it does in due diligence to make sure that this is really robust on cca. that way we got, the hearings later that says it does not specify. we need that to happen so that we can be confident [chim
and a legal standpoint. next item is that the use of the data for free and reduced lunch program is severely restricted. we are not in a position where we can simply take the data we have already in existence and transfer it over. the data, by federal law, is restricted to the use of free and reduced lunch programs. we are not able to move that over. what we have to do is recreated in a way that can be set up so we can gather the same kind of data, but we have to do it in a separate new infrastructure. it is a redundancy. it is a bureaucratic mess, but it is what we have to do in order to follow the law and not risk funding for our free lunch program. the next two items on your i want to talk about is that with 12,000 passes, there is significant risk in being able to move that kind of money. we are talking about roughly the value of passes would be at $250,000. setting that up either at the sites or even at the central location requires an amount of risk. you are putting staff at risk. there are security issues. there is the ability for us to be able to accept that and be able to move it ba
because we use the internet. what we used to do was carry the large maps and it took a long time to find the information. >> it saves the city time and money. you are not taking up the time of a particular employee at the assessor's office. you might be doing things more efficient. >> they have it ready to go and say, this is what i want. >> they are finding the same things happening on the phone where people call in and ask, how do i find this information? we say, go to this website and they go and get the information easily. >> a picture tells a thousand stories. some say a map supervisor mirkarimi: good morning. welcome to the public safety committee. we expect supervisor cohen to join us shortly. madam clerk, please read the first item. >> item 1, hearing to receive a report from the san francisco police department and/or a mayor's office of criminal justice regarding public safety conditions, including citywide crime levels and trends both city-wide and by police district station and/or neighborhood. supervisor mirkarimi: all right. very good. as we expect to do on a monthly bas

[applause] >> hello. i am here representing the treasure island community. i'm here -- mayor, thank you for being here this evening. just to support the catholic charities and development center. we really need funding for that. and to reestablish the muni link that helps our families to the grocery store. there are no grocery stores on the island. population consists of a transitional community. we used to have about 180 kids to provide academic success, job readiness, healthy lifestyles, and we're taking from the children that are the future of our generation. so please reconsider budget cuts, and i just want to say hello to maria and thank you for all the work you do. please do not cut our children funds. thank you.

[applause] >> next, i would like to introduce supervisor avalos. he led the way to foster this ground-breaking legislation to strengthen local hiring, addressing high unemployment, and boosting our local economy. thank you, supervisor avalos. supervisor avalos: good morning. good afternoon. it's great to be here. mayor lee, you are speaking my languag
, and not knowing what is happening. >> i agree. that is one area where you have helped us a great deal, you as a group, bringing this to our attention. i am much more confident on the light rail side right now. in addition to restating our policy, we have new technology, and now we are able to monitor better. we were able to get all of our cited in sync so that the cited on board matches that signed at the platform. if you decide to switch to an outbound train that is leaving, let's say, embarcadero, we should be able to tell people consistently throughout the trip that we are short-turning a train at 8 particular destination. commisioner wiener: i am frequently on the k, l, or m. i do not recall seeing any notification or silage. it does not affect me personally, but i would like to hear that it is turning around above ground. if that is something that is feasible -- i do not know that it is -- i do not believe it is happening, from my perspective. >> i will be happy to check. commissioner campos: commissioner avalos? commissioner avalos: anticipation about switchbacks occurring -- i wonde
mirkarimi: you have given us some things to think about. it was wonderful to have you here. >> good evening, board of supervisors. maria sue, director of the department youth and their families. i echo and support the ordinance of the legislation that commissioner chan is supporting. how the police can and perhaps should work with a juvenile and young people. hearing some of the testimonies from young people and parents, i have come to realize that one of the things we have done already is creatine a forum to meet with our case managers. maybe what we should do is take that one step further and create a forum to engage with our young people in the schools. i have heard many times, people say that it clicks and works really well. they meet and talk with the young people. that maybe that's something we can think about and work on. some concrete steps after this conversation. there is a significant amount of funding in the service area. we want to make sure that we leverage all of our partners skill sets and expertise in making sure that we have a very comprehensive perspective in the area. su
, when they reach out, citizens come forward and we are all safer. this makes all of us safer, and i want to thank you for your leadership. supervisor mirkarimi: thank you. >> thank you, supervisor mirkarimi. commissioners from the police commission. i feel like a bit of an interloper. i was leaving the building after the probation commission this evening and wondered where our friends, the police commission, it looked dark. i learned there was something going on here. in some interest was piqued. i heard these powerful statements and perspectives being a advanced by the members you ourth co-- of our youth community. i thought i would listen, joined the group, and jot down some ideas that i am thinking of advancing to the police commission. the qualities that i think the new chief of police in san francisco should possess, among many other qualities. these are qualities that i think interface very closely with what we have heard in the testimony of our youth as well as the experience that i have had in 41 years of juvenile probation work. i think it is an articulate it understanding of th
without public funds, for the planet, it reduces curdling energy consumption, portable water use, and waste water by 60%. it is incredibly important for san francisco to keep making progress on the first acts of housing within the city limits. the amount of housing proposed and its carefully proposed a density is necessary to support a successful transit-oriented development. the plan provides a nice array of housing for a diverse population of current and future residents including young professionals, family with children, seniors, and students. i urge the board to reject this appeal and uphold [chime] >> i am a native san franciscan and a resident of district 10. i am a graduate of high-school and i am very familiar with the neighborhood. this is bringing it closer to residents. socially vibrant neighborhoods, a pedestrian focus, modern homes, and healthy neighborhoods. the aging buildings, outdated designs, people afraid of not looking at the big picture and how it positively attraction growth. he has been a battle cry for identification for community activists. it is importa
cohen to join us shortly. madam clerk, please read the first item. >> item 1, hearing to receive a report from the san francisco police department and/or a mayor's office of criminal justice regarding public safety conditions, including citywide crime levels and trends both city-wide and by police district station and/or neighborhood. supervisor mirkarimi: all right. very good. as we expect to do on a monthly basis, hear from the police department capt. good morning. giving us updates on public safety trends, predictions, and progress. so, please. >> good morning, supervisors. i have in front of me the city wide profile issued on a weekly basis. but what we do it is take a four-week extraction period. city-wide, homicides have stayed a step with the same period -- homicides have stayed exactly the same. rapes went from 5 to 11. robberies are down 17%. aggravated assaults are down 14%. on our subject of rapes, however, i would like to point out that year to date, we are down 36%. from 25 last year to 16 this year. our property crime, burglary was down 21% from 355 to 280 and down
: this was previously introduced by supervisor mar. good morning, controller. >> thank you for having us here on our update for the work plan for the current fiscal year. we presented the work plan for our city services auditor function at this committee just after the start of the current fiscal year. it was a different committee at that point, so we appreciate the opportunity to come back and provide you an update on the status of our current projects. as we ramp down one year, we are starting the process for the coming fiscal year with the city departments and others. we look forward to coming back to this committee to hear him put on our work plan for fiscal year-20 -- fiscal year 2011 in the coming months. just briefly, this function within our office was dramatically enhanced when the voters approved appendix after the city charter which enhanced the city auditor pension within the comptroller's office. it is funded with baseline funding requirements equal to 0.2% with any individual partner -- the individual departments of the city. it guaranteed funding going forward. that means we do have m
it would not be cost-effective for the city to give us enough accountants to have every transaction posted reviewed by a live human being, we sample the pre approval at have the auditing function in place, especially on the financial audit portion to detect later. and all up in case after something has been detected, was this appropriately that? probably more so than cost savings, a financial audit has that in mind. it is the balance to our pre approvals as opposed to just maintaining a controlled environment within the city. supervisor campos: please continue. >> i think it might also answer some of your questions about whether we go through this list of technical projects, he will get a better sense of things we do and recognize a lot of them are not just analyses that have the potential to sit on the shelf. all lot of our engagements are working with department thought implementations may have committed to making the changes necessary to do that. i will go through these relatively quickly and you may feel free to ask me to questions at the end. we collect a fair amount of performance in
and the neighbor's backyard areas, i think? is there? can you show us? just to kind of -- because i think it looks like that might be what becomes the point of discussion here ultimately. >> i believe this area here -- that area is actually being used right now by the owners of this property. >> right. >> but it looks like the use is going to be all in here, the patio use. >> it is pretty close. >> i think part of the issue i have is that, again, mission street is a neighborhood commercial district, you know? it is an area that is a vital commercial district in san francisco. and i would not want to put a lot of prohibitions on and start a precedent where we are prohibiting what business can do along a neighborhood commercial corridor. i think we have two dangerous precedents we are looking at here. you have union street. you have filmore st.. you have all these but the commercial corridors, the visitor wrote. we want to be able to kind of encouraged fatality along these corridors, and although there are neighbors that are going to be affected that are adjacent, i think we do need to take that int
, and this is the mcdonald's of central america. and i think that the conditional use process and the formula retail that disallows community members the opportunity to discuss and to propose conditions to a more global corporation like poll, campero and 325-plus restaurants and 16 countries and is a facet of a much larger corporation that is involved in the poultry industry in guatemala, in the wheat building and hydroelectric energy and banking, financial services, this is a huge corporation in central america aside from the nostalgia, and we need to look at that in terms of the giving the community the opportunity to place substantial conditions on this restaurant if it does come through. and i think that that is the power that you hold to delay this vote so the community can consider those. we're really the impact of it will have on other locally mom and pop restaurants in our community. people keep talking about the store front empty and there is a vibrant business community that would be impacted and we also need to look at our own local latino multi-ethnic flavor we have established for decad
discussions were very meaningful with the mayor, and i think we can make this a useful tool for us and focus the mayor's attention on things that perhaps he or future mayor she would not be attending to. i think it would be a useful exercise to move forward on, but hopefully, we can look at building a little more spontaneity into it, and hopefully, we will see as we move forward we will work to do that. thanks. supervisor chiu: colleagues, can we take this item same house, same call? without objection, the ordinances passed on the first reading. >> item 20, ordinance amending the administrative code, authorizing the assessor to recommend rewards for information related to the detection of underpayment of tax owed to the city. supervisor chiu: same house, same call? the ordinances passed on the first reading. >> item 21, ordinance authorizing the department of technology to accept and expend a grant from the u.s. the poorman of commerce for sustainable broadband adoption training and services and amending the annual salary or in its fiscal year 2010-2011 to reflect the addition of six grand-f

examining the accounting processes used to deposit donations into the fund, to allocate in addition to various accounts, and to record expenditures from the fund. in order to determine if the department's process is consistent with city accounting practices and at here is to administer code section 10.100 through 201 that created the gift fund, the review found the record a transaction to be consistent the general purpose of the fund and in line with city accounting practices. however, the comptroller recommended the department held separate employee development from the gift fund. in addition to laguna honda removing staff developments of accounts, from within the gift fund, it was noted that prior to the onset of the audit build work, that laguna honda accounting session performed an internal review of donations and expenditures for both patients and staff related sub accounts in the gift fund. the laguna honda accounting section staff identified incorrect postings and corrected its record. paris included two checks designated to reimburse patient related activities and amounts fr
kits that are available to us and limitations of those tool kits, the need to expand those tool kits, talking about planning activities, and then a quick overview of the report on the pedestrian safety. this is something we have been working on. this diagram we have been working on as an agency ever since we were created, to create this mobility vision for the city. with bicycle sharing coming on board next year, we feel like we have all the most together. i would be remiss by not saying that walking is fundamental to the city's vision. a city trip begins or ends on your feet or in a wheelchair device. that has struck a chord in all of our planning decisions. san francisco has led the nation on shifting its philosophy from moving cars to moving people, connecting people with neighborhoods. the reason i put this up here is because this is fundamental to our design work. if we designed street that can physically allow cars to move at 40 miles per hour, we should not be surprised that they are, even if the linage recommends 25. as was mentioned, the five elements of good street design l
. things that are more broad than we have tried in the past. using the community to really reach the multi-lingual groups, as well as things like enforcement, that are legislatively difficult, for whatever reason. there are no right turns and we have not been able to use the cameras for this or many things. we have this for the red lights, but we have not been able to achieve the speed control that you have spoken about. and there is legislation that we're interested in doing. this is along market street. these do want a closer look, as well as to figure out, a different set of issues in the neighborhood zone, and in the schools on. i absolutely agree that there has been a lot of study, but there has not been a lot of comprehensive ability, because these did not indicate the full range of measures that are possible. especially those that are cost- effective. the outreach and education and the legislative enforcements. >> a lot of things in response to this. you are talking to the city legislators. many of my colleagues may be open to trying some of these. the issue of marketing, i have vis
identified as simple accounting errors. the coating on the receipt tags that were used to deposit these into the financial system were coded incorrectly. it was identified by laguna honda but they showed it to us. >> this resulted in approximately 24,000, 16% of revenue recorded into step account for which the autumn recommended additional correction. as was noted earlier, laguna honda did their own internal audit and made a huge correction. this was the remainder which the audit identified as 24,000. the amount recorded incorrectly was comprised of $37,102 representing two checks that were designated to reimburse patients related activities. 17,750 of checks mostly for family and production companies. 5004 and a $30 and operating income recorded at donations to staff accounts. 1200 staff related sub accounts but amounts are not explicitly designated as staff related. 90,200 to $7 in accumulated interest missed allocated to staff some accounts. as it relates to our expenditure findings, laguna honda did not provide supporting documentation for 35% of the 324 samples tested. they p
transit. we have been organizing. in this economic crisis, the use of the city, especially youth of color, are hit very hard. they represent some of the most honorable in our society. many public resources for youth have been cut. put together with their parent'' experience and economic hardship, the availability for youth to get to school and access public services such as after-school programs, library services, etc., have diminished. some families have to choose between spending money for food and spending money for transit, as some women have already spoken about. more public transit things this is a crime. no one should have to make that choice. transportation is a right and should be free for all. the beginning of that is free youth passes. we would like to see free youth passes for all youth, not just low-income news. thank you. supervisor campos: thank you very much. next speaker, please. >> good afternoon. my name is of his martina's -- is otiz martinez. all you see behind you is color and struggle. we have taken a chance for the youth. we have taken a dream and they hope. if the
